MERRITT, Tony Joseph
Tony Joseph Merritt, beloved husband of Teresa, lost his fight with cancer on Saturday, April 5, 2014 at the Foothills Medical Centre in Calgary, AB. Tony was born in Saskatoon, SK on May 19, 1956. He welcomed every new day wherever he was. Tony began life as a military brat and was a proud member of the Canadian Forces for 27 years as well as a Flight Attendant with WestJet for nearly 13 years. He loved to tell stories of his adventures, serving heads of state around the world, including the Queen Mother, as well as meeting guests on flight and making friends. Tony is survived by his wife Teresa (nee Ingoldsby); daughter Elizabeth; mother Stella; sisters Dorothy Ann and Virginia (Vince); brother Ron (Carol); mother-in-law Sylvia; sister-in-law Lucie Anne (Jim); brothers-in-law Dan (Marg) and Michael as well as numerous aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his father Walter. Tony was the ultimate volunteer - whether you needed a ride, help to move or an extra pair of hands at a sporting event. The family would like to express their gratitude to the staff of Unit 102 at the Foothills Medical Centre for their care and compassion. Those wishing to pay their respects may do so at FOSTER'S GARDEN CHAPEL, 3220 - 4 Street N.W., Calgary (across from Queen's Park Cemetery) on Thursday, April 10, 2014 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at Corpus Christi Roman Catholic Church, 404 Northmount Place N.W., Calgary, AB on Friday, April 11, 2014 at 10:30 a.m. If friends so desire, memorial donations may be made directly to the Tom Baker Cancer Centre, 1331 - 29 Street N.W., Calgary, AB T2N 4N2 or the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Alberta, Suite 200, 119 - 14 Street N.W., Calgary, AB T2N 1Z6.
